Hello Honeybees, and happy new year!
Many of you have asked how to support our work, and we are grateful for your encouragement, in all of its forms.
Hopefully you’ve noticed that we try to put relationships before transactions here at Honeybee. We offer our work on an open-access basis, no payments or personal disclosures required, and when we do our business planning, it’s around ideas, not products to sell. I’m happy to report that this trust-based business model works quite well, and that Honeybee is thriving in all ways. Thanks to your opt-in financial support and our focus on keeping a modest cost base, we are nicely profitable and able to recycle those profits back in to the community in a wonderful way.
Having said all of that, I want to be clear that this Honeybee is not a luxurious hobby – it is a for-profit business. It takes hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars to do what we do each month. Our purpose is to support you in your own endeavors, so if our work has inspired you this past year, improved your own investment thinking, or led to more interesting questions for you to ponder, we ask you to support our work in return.
With warm wishes for a glorious new year, full of peace, prosperity, and joy.
